Don't forget about the SS's bigger and much heavier wheels.

I'm sure that if the Cobalt SS is listed as faster it's because it's equipped with the LSD. There is no way that a heavier car with bigger heavier wheels and the same powertrain can be faster.

Know whats funny about that Nocturn? the SRT-4 states that it weighs 2970.

Our 2003 SRT-4 weighs 2820.

Would be nice to see how much the Cobalt SS weighs in at. We do have a certified scale locally where we weigh our car.

I believe it's faster for the reasons of
#1 Test car had LSD.
#2 LSD helped the CSS achive better short time.

Saturn Redline Curbweight is 2,930 lbs



Chevy Cobalt SS Curbweight is 2,806 lbs

The Cobalt SS is lighter and I belive they even changed the gearing also on the Cobalt SS to use more of it's powerband, On the RL the you hit the Rev Limitor and you are still gaining power. I have heard that if the RL was able to rev an extra 500 - 700 RPM's that it will reach it's full potention and when you shift you will be able to keep the RPM's above 4,000 where you make real good power. I am not positive and don't quote me if I remember right I heard a someone on the Cobalt Design team say something along the lines that there were canges made to the Cobalt SS to reach more of it's potential power.


Also on the J-Body Orginization there was a good thread/debate on the 2 cars. I suggest reading the thread and make your own opinion about what is faster.

With such closely matched cars, it's going to be more a matter of the driver, the road conditions, etc.

Hope to see some of you guys out on the road!

hmmm...I'd like to think the cobalt due to chevy being the flagship company, not saturn, but either way man I can't wait to race one.
